Gave FF tactics advance a try. Judge system and story suck, but those were flaws I knew about and accepted before I played.

 I like building up my characters and the whole clan thing. But it's like the game whispers to me 'You're putting effort into a game that's not very good'. It does this by displaying advanced battle tactics like white mages running to the front lines and meleeing me for 1 damage. Which is bad AI even before you take counter attack into account.

 Eh, I've liked games I've acknowledged as bad before. SMT:Kuzonoha raidou for example. Clunky, repetitive and your cat holds your hand through the whole story. But the game had style. FFTA doesn't have style, but it has a class system that I'm a sucker for. Still, I'm leaning against continuing it and just digging out the original to get my fix.

Google, for some unknown reason since it's my default browser search engine.

RPG fan.

http://www.somethingawful.com -Really just in it for the usually entertaining weekly photoshops.

http://ffxi.killvoid.com/ -Old ffxi site that's still on the list for some reason even though I don't play. Still curiosity brings me in there every few months to see how the games changing. The halfhearted attempts SE makes generally amuse me. Moogles in selbina? People have only been asking for them since the game came out years ago. Why bother listening now that everyone's left?

Some torrent sites I probably shouldn't link :P

http://www.worldofwarcraft.com (The forums indeed being a hive of scum and villainy. And trolls. Lots of trolls.), along with some wow related sites like http://www.wowhead.com/

I usually have a gamefaqs page bookmarked to whatever game I currently or most recently used it for. Right now it's http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/game/582958.html since I'm replaying nocturne. I try not to use walkthroughs on games if I can help it, but I like looking up abilities and such as well as mechanics of how things work. If a game has a vague ability like 'increases damage with swords' or 'occasionally counter opponents attacks' that's not enough for me. I want a percent, and that's what gamefaqs is for :P

http://www.youtube.com/

Also a folder filled with comic links, but we already have threads on those pop up every few months so I'll spare you.

Except y'know, both of those shows were pretty good. :P


I'd say bleach is better than Yu Yu Hakusho(Although to it's credit I doubt bleach would even exist if not for YYH for some basic plot foundation stealing). The problem with YYH is it played the fighting tournament card and it went on for like 3/4ths of the series. I mean, I did enjoy the show, but doing that wasted a lot of it's potential.

The game wasn't all that great as it was basically just a endorsed SoM ripoff. Cool setting and music stopped it from being bad though.

It's alright. I follow it on Adult Swim though and that means the filler arc will be on.


And for the sub watchers..filler arc #2 just started :P Japan needs to stop making unfinished manga into anime.

definitely gonna try this game

Thanks for bringing back a thread that is over 7 months dead for that little bit of insight. Bravo.


To be fair, with just two semi active posts it was probably still near the top of the first page.

I read Blade of the Immortal. Incredible for quite awhile. Then it kills itself by running into a brick wall of bad pacing with merely a 'ok' story that goes on far, far longer than it has a right to.

I'm also becoming a little bored with the story. It seemed like Light had won and the story was almost over and then more drama.


Although I don't know if it's true I've heard people say the death of L was supposed to be the end of the series and the author just got roped into continuing it. It'd certainly make sense given the decline in quality. Not just with Near and Mello being crappy(Though they were), but killing people just became par for course. No drama or shock value to it. Or rather, you're pretty much desensitized to by this point.

Although I loved Light flipping out at the very end, it should have ended with L.

Code:
Though the scene with Baltar getting his throat cut open(Next best thing ot a airlock) and asking to die was pretty awesome...not sure if a redeemed Baltar is the way I want to see them take the character. Selfish ass who's in way over his head is where he shines.

I wouldn't say "the definition of broken" really, BLMs and BLUs have been doing that for years.


I remember going up on that 40 cap floating island in tavnazia and soloing those hippogriffs that parties always say to stay the hell away from on blu. I think I took on some dragons up there too. Scary, but awesome fights.

Job even had me level a whm sub. That's how good it was :P
701  The Rest / General Discussions / Gamestop? Mo' liek, Gamegestapo! Or, "The Game Stops He on: March 16, 2008, 10:42:22 AM
Gamestop can do you worst than putting a sticker on your box. I remember ordering one of the old PS1 Tales of.. games that I couldn't find anywhere else used from them. It was a multi disc game and they just sent me disc one. I explained things in a email and sent it back. Twice. Both times they just sent me one disc again. Third time they realized their mistake, but didn't have enough complete copies of the game and said they'd sent it when they had it(Refund offered, but after all this hassle I was going to get my game).

 Long having forgotten about it, I finally got my game. One year later.

Curiosity getting the best of me and checking details on KI I have to vote retaliation the most badass ability with no point whatsoever. A huge tanking damage/hate increase..to a job that can't take a hit :P

Obviously, some battles such as Fafnir/Nidhogg are simple matters of "stand on his feet and don't Spike Flail it," but not every HNM falls under that category. Kirin was a kited battle for *years* and still is.


Kited fights were one of FFXI's big failures though. They were basically a big 'fuck you' to the melee dps, who had trouble getting a hit off on them even when they were riding the bosses ass do to latency.

I think if I were the guy who made that I think the last thing I'd want is it reprinted, particularly after a plot against my life was just foiled.

I am Legend. I loved it. I'm not sure how it came to pass, but Will Smith can act and totally sold it for me. And..

While you know full well what's going to happen to the dog before the movie even starts, it still made me want to cry like a girl.
